Do not fear

To walk dark streets alone at night.

The dark will not hurt you.

It conseals, not enemies, but you,

And protects you from horrors.

Do not fear

To stride through shadowed alleys.

A friend is always there, waiting

Watching out for you.

Fear not solitude.

Don't be afraid

Of Death Dogs, lurking in the shadows.

They bear no ill will towards you

But stand, watchful, guarding you

From all mortal fears.

Be comforted

For by night and day, shadow and light

Rain and clear skies, life and death,

No matter where you are, be comforted.

For all my Kith protects you.
